Henderson Focused On Winning Rounds, Not Landing H-Bomb On Jones

Dan Henderson has what could be his last chance to win a championship belt when he faces Jon Jones at UFC 151 on September 1st.

The 41 year old Hendo discussed the upcoming title fight with Jones and offered the following on his game plan heading into the bout:

“I guess the difference is he's probably got arms twice as long as everyone else I've fought. But it's not rocket science, I've been doing it a while. There's certain things I need to be careful for that he does well and it's the same approach I have with any fight. There are certain things that guys do best and you just gotta be aware of that and still gotta implement what I want to do with him. … I think with my style, I feel very comfortable going against his style. My focus is to win every round, not to land the H-Bomb but just to make sure I win every round. If I hit him pretty good along the way, hopefully it knocks him out. But I do need to make sure I get inside of his length, stay in his face and make him fight me.”
